CEO Oliver Bäte: "We will take sustainability to the heart of Allianz"

Allianz has the ambition, as well as the global scale and skills, to be the trusted partner of our stakeholders, helping to solve society’s most pressing issues. We believe in collaboration and partnerships, as many of the sustainability related matters require global action beyond company boundaries.

We support the transformation towards sustainable economies and societies this means that we want our economy to provide the societal minimum for all while not breaking ecological barriers. Our ambition is to integrate sustainability into everything that happens at Allianz, into our decision making, thereby driving real world impact in societies, economies and the environment. 

Already today, we are taking environmental, social and governance aspects to the heart of our business. Going forward, we are working to fully integrate sustainability into how we run our organization and our business alike, and to drive real world impact in societies, economies, and the environment.
